Challenges faced

The Councils Local Planning Scheme made no provision for breweries in the Swan Valley. We were able to negotiate the introduction of a new ‘Use Class’ into the Scheme to create an opportunity to approve breweries in an important winery and tourism area. This pioneering action lead to a number of other breweries being approved, including the award winning Feral Brewery and Elmars in the Valley, for which we were the applicants.
